Bonnaroo has officially canceled its 2020 festival as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread. In March, the festival postponed its original June dates to September.

However, Bonnaroo will head back to Manchester, Tennessee in 2021, and the dates are set for June 17-20. Ticketholders for this year’s event can roll their tickets over to next year, but refunds are also available.

The fun in 2020 isn't totally gone, though. Bonnaroo announced a virtual festival from September 24-27, and those who roll over their tickets to 2021 can access the event for free. According to the website, the virtual bash will include "some of our favorite moments from past and present, along with some special surprises."

More information for the virtual festival will be out soon.
